The Italian designer is going to spend more time with his own label, MSGM, which he launched in 2009.

Emilio Pucci is losing its creative director.

Massimo Giorgetti is leaving the top design post, the Florentine luxury label confirmed Thursday. 

"We have decided in total agreement to end the partnership," said CEO Mauro Grimaldi. "I would like to thank, personally and on behalf of the company, Massimo Giorgetti for the great professionalism shown during these two years of collaboration."

Giorgetti joined the company in 2015, replacing Peter Dundas. In addition to taking the helm at Emilio Pucci, the Italian creative continued designing for his own line, MSGM, which he launched in 2009.

"This experience with Emilio Pucci, one of the most representative and historic brands in fashion, was an inspiring journey, which has also contributed to my professional growth," said Giorgetti. "Today my brand needs more and more of my attention and all my energy."

Giorgetti's psychedelic Pucci designs were a hit with Zoe Saldana, Elizabeth Olsen, Lupita Nyong'o, Claire Danes and Amy Adams, among others.

The fashion house hasn't yet announced a replacement for Giorgetti.
